SCHOOLS, community leaders, councils and members of the public are invited to nominate outstanding youngsters for an annual awards scheme.
Derbyshire’s Young Achiever Awards, which have been running for 14 years, recognise extraordinary children and young people in the county for bravery in fighting an illness, kindness in helping others, commitment to improving their school, community or local environment and sporting, musical, artistic or academic success.
All youngsters aged from three to 18 who attend a Derbyshire infant, primary, secondary or special school, or who live in Derbyshire, are eligible for an award.
Successful youngsters and their guests will be invited to a glitzy Oscar-style ceremony in December where they will be presented with certificates and a small gift in recognition of their efforts.
The closing date for nominations is Friday 19 October 2012. Visit www.derbyshire.gov.uk/youngachievers to enter.
